    You've made a good decision. It would just be awful to be prepared everywhere but your home, and then have something happen at home where you would need it and it was on your nightstand, in a safe, in another room, etc., etc.

    I heard someone at the front door today and although I had a really good idea as to who it was, I didn't know with 100% assurance. So what did I do? I grabbed my Glock lying next to me and brought it to the door with me. I wouldn't have done this less-than a year ago. So yes, I'm acquiring "new" habits as well. ;-)

    My bride thinks my Miami Classic II is sexy, but when I wore it to bed, I just got tangled up in it.

    Been doing it for way over fifteen years now... Didn't start out that way, but after the first attempted home invasion, that solidified my opinion for the importance for staying prepared even at home. One thing I did come to realize over last couple of years is though. The j frame revolver makes the task much easier to tolerate. Slip it in the pocket and relax.

    100% of home invaisions happen in the home.

    I carry when I wear pants, and I have a teenage daughter at home so yeah I wear pants a lot.

    You are welcome OP, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing our collective knowledge, opinions, expieriences, and deep thoughts are helping to make each of us just a little more aware and safer.

    I can't get over this one problem: yes, I'm very prepared--except for when it's most likely to happen, i.e., 2 or 3 in the morning, when it's in the safe. (I have a two-year-old, so I just can't convince myself that nightstand placement is safe). I follow a policy of (1) on me or in the safe or (2) if I have to take it out and put it down momentarily, always somewhere up very high and/or unloaded. At night, given my house's very sound proof floors/walls, I think it's conceivable that someone could be in my house and coming up the stairs before I would necessarily notice, so it would be hard to get my safe open in time. The other thought I've had is just putting up a shelf near the ceiling above the headboard of my bed, so that only an adult standing on the bed could reach it. Still, there is something about leaving a loaded gun unsecured anywhere in a house with a child that skeezes me out.

    Hm, maybe I just convinced myself I need an alarm system?

    I have one of these on my nightstand, my child is 16 and knows what happens when triggers are pulled but I don't want to be "that guy".

    If you use a Auto loader for defense, you could always remove the mag and the chambered round for child safety. If the pooh hits the fan it would only take a couple of seconds to charge the firearm for use... JMO
